Melania urged US citizens to stop making assumptions based on race and reflected candidly on US history.

POTUS Donald Trump currently trails Democratic challenger Joe Biden in opinion polls for November’s presidential election.

The commonly limelight-shunning US first lady gave Tuesday evening’s keynote address before a small audience, including her husband, in the Rose Garden of the White House.

She praised her husband as someone who “makes no secrets about how he feels about things”.

Her decision to speak from the seat of presidential power has angered Democrats, who announced the venue was an inappropriate use of government resources for political purposes.
